Silvano Porcinai, class 1950, is a Tuscan genuine and true artist, extremely talend in the modeling of his sculptures, as if he himself was made of bronze.
His hands are a natural projection of what he creates in sculpture, as if the clay and the bronze would come out direcly from his arms.
He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and is currently Professor of Art at the Institute of Fine Arts of Florence and Pisa.
He is very much permeated into the origins and the roots of our own land, often choosing to depict subject such as Etruscan Chimeras, in a fantastic modern re-interpretation.
But his interests go far beyond his borders, supporting his great cultural knowoledge and passionate love for far away civilisations.

The Bullfigther representation, dressed in a spanish modern way, is one of the most mithological old creatures of all times.The man is no more a completely human shape, he is the hunter and the quarry, he is the winner and the loser.
Dating back to the Mycenaen age all the way to the most far away oriental cultures, Silvano Porcinai embodies the representations of the world main civilisations into incorruptible and eternal bronze.
